Porcelain veneers are a great way to achieve a beautiful and natural-looking smile. The best part about veneers is that they require similar maintenance to that of natural teeth.

While porcelain veneers are known for their durability, they can still be prone to damage if not properly cared for. They are resistant to staining, but the cement used to bond the veneers to your teeth can become stained. It is also important to note that the parts of your natural teeth that are not covered by veneers are still susceptible to decay caused by plaque buildup.
To ensure the longevity of your porcelain veneers, here are six useful tips:
1.Maintain good oral hygiene with proper brushing and flossing.
2.Avoid biting into hard foods or objects.
3.Stay away from foods and beverages that may stain your veneers.
4.Refrain from using your teeth as a tool to open things.
5.If you have bruxism (teeth grinding/clenching), wear a mouthguard while sleeping.
6.Keep up with your regular dental visits.
By following these tips, you can maintain the beauty of your new smile and the strength of your veneers, which can last 10-15 years when properly cared for.
